  • 2 beefsteak tomatoes, cored and sliced 1/2 inch thick
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 whole-wheat buns, grilled
  • 4 slices sharp cheddar
  • 8 basil leaves


  1. Drizzle tomato slices with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over medium-high heat, turning, until juicy and charred in spots, about 5 minutes.

  2. Top bun bottoms with cheese and grill, covered, until just melted, about 1 minute. Top with grilled tomatoes and garnish with basil.
